Wondering how to style your makeup this summer? After months spent indoors and makeup free, it’s finally time to have a little fun with your looks this season. So we’ve got you covered with our top 5 beauty trends for this summer to make sure you’ll be runway-ready at every moment.
Nothing says summer like sun kissed, dewy skin. This trend has been around for a little while now and it shows no signs of slowing down. It’s especially a perfect look for summer garden parties too. To get the look, skin preparation is key. Start with a gentle exfoliation – acid ones are particularly effective at getting under the surface of your skin. Then it’s time to hydrate, ideally using a product containing hyaluronic acid to achieve that dewy glow. Once your skin is prepped and ready, all you need is a light primer to follow and your favourite tinted moisturiser for easy-breezy glowing summer skin.
Bold eye shadows
Strong and bold eye looks are certainly having a moment this summer and while a pop of blue on your eyelids used to scream children’s dance show, now it tells people you’re bang on trend. So it’s time to get experimental, have a little fun with it, and be brave with your colours – start with purple hues for extra style points.
Laid back lashes
To really enhance your eyes this summer, try a Russian volume lash treatment like this one from Lash Perfect. Whether you’re going for the poolside no-make-up-but-still-flawless vibe, or you want to draw more attention to those dramatic eye looks – a Russian volume lash treatment will help you achieve both and take the hassle out of your summer makeup routine. The treatment lasts around four weeks making it perfect for low-maintenance and fuss-free summer holiday style and can be as subtle or bold as you like.
Brushed out eyebrows with transparent gels or coloured waxes is the perfect solution to brow maintenance this summer. In the heat, drawing on perfectly arched brows can seem a little much, so simply brush them out instead to create a groomed look without the bother. Brushing your brows requires so much less precision and skill than drawing them on, so it’s an easy one for everyone and particularly ideal for when doing your makeup on the move.
After 3 lockdowns and months spent in doors make-up free, nothing says makeup is back quite like a bold graphic eyeliner. To achieve this statement look, draw a clean line following the natural curve of your eye just above your eyelid crease. Then, draw a wing from your outer eye corner and connect the two. It might be tricky to get right the first time but persevere. Once you’ve got the basics, you can get as creative as you like with extra lines and different colours.
But remember, whatever trend you opt for, the golden summer beauty trend that never goes out of style is always regular applications of sun cream!
